Pain!: If you do this too often or too deep without clearing, you can rupture your ear drum or seriously injure your ears. Clearing ears is a must for divers.

Negative pressure: The space behind ear drum will develop a negative pressure pulling in your eardrum. This will hurt. It may rupture. You may bleed in the ear. Won't be too fun.
